We believe children are strong, capable learners who learn best through social and environmental interactions. Our preschool staff provides opportunities for children that stimulate each child’s physical, social, intellectual, and emotional development in our natural, home-like environment. The preschool is licensed by the State of California and offers quality care and excellent standards of the YMCA.

We also offer free Child Watch services for Family memberships for up to two hours while mom or dad make use of the Y. Playful, engaging options are plentiful for young children while you exercise or connect with others over shared interests.

The YMCA of San Diego County is proud to offer several amazing camps where every child can build confidence and make new friends in a safe and nurturing environment. From horseback riding in Julian to surfing in Imperial Beach, each of our camps have something special to offer the young adventurer in your life.

The Y is a place where you can work toward that balance by challenging yourself to learn a new skill or hobby, fostering connections with friends through our lifelong learning programs, or bringing your loved ones closer together through our many family-centered activities.
